- Euro-Zone GDP failed to grow in the second quarter following 12 months of weak growth, causing European equity markets to fall and increasing pressure on the ECB to do more to boost growth and inflation.
- Data released this morning by the European Union's statistics office translates into 0.2% growth in annualized terms, down from the first quarter's 0.8% pace.
- The euro zone's three largest economies, which account for two-thirds of the region's €9.6T ($12.8T) GDP, all did not post any growth. German GDP shrank 0.2% from the first quarter and Italy's output fell at a similar pace. The French economy, the bloc's second largest behind Germany, stagnated for a second straight quarter.
- The region's next largest economies, Spain and the Netherlands, posted some growth but not enough to offset their larger peers.

- Euroskeptic and far-right parties have made strong gains in some countries in elections for the European parliament as voters expressed resentment at the EU and the severe austerity it has promoted.
- A stand-out result is the 25% that the anti-euro Front National won in France, where President François Hollande's Socialists received just 14%.
- In Britain, UKIP, which wants the country to leave the EU, took the most votes with a share of more than 27%. Anti-EU parties also did well in Greece and Denmark.
- Markets seem to be fairly sanguine about the results, with the euro +0.1% at $1.3638.
- In Italy, the center-left ruling Democrat Party, led by new Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, won 41% of the vote. "The outcome is...likely to delight the markets, where investors can be expected to see it as a resounding vote of confidence in the 39 year-old prime minister, his youthful cabinet and their ambitious program of political and economic reforms," writes the Economist's Charlemagne column. The FTSE Mib is +2.5%.
- Euro Stoxx 600 +0.35%, London closed, Paris +0.7%, Frankfurt +1.5%, Madrid +0.7%.
